SP and Company Stamp

Happy Wednesday,
I have two cards today. The first one was a lot of fun and it took some time. I used the sketch from Sweet Sketch Sunday Challenge 107. Karen came up with a great one this week.
Here is my card.
I wanted to use the stamp by SP and Company that says Cheer Up Buttercup and to make a buttercup.
The is so much better in real life. I am very happy with the way it turned out. Do you know what I used for the center of my buttercup? I am going to see if you can guess. I googled a buttercup and I think I came pretty close to the real thing.
The sentiment is from my favorite SP and Company set called Ultimate Sentiments I Stamp Set.

Here is the other card I made using the same sentiment set and a Magnolia stamp. I made this for a very dear friend whose father is very sick.
A couple of you asked if I would show how I do the inside of my cards. I line just about every one I make. I just take computer paper and cut it a bit smaller than the card. Then I fold it and use a border punch. 
Then I only tape the back near the fold of the card. This is the lining for the Praying for you card.
This is the lining for the Cheer up buttercup card. It is turned on its side.
If you don't have SP and Company's  Ultimate Sentiments I Stamp Set yet you really should if you can fit it into your budget. It is the set I have out all the time.
Don't forget to leave you guess in the comment. Oh and by the center of the flower I don't mean the brad. I mean how did I create the stamen?

Thanks for stopping,

These are great! I have been sitting here staring at the buttercup and I'm not sure. It almost looks to me like a cross with a triangle frame welded to the top of it. *LOL* That's probably wrong - but it's the best guess I've got.

Cute cards! I think the stamen is made from a snowflake. That's my best guess.

Great cards. Very nice idea to combine patterned papers. The work was worth it.
